Hi everyone! I’m back!
What a week this has been. It’s been tiring. It’s been draining. But we’re finally all moved into our new home. Moved in however, doesn’t mean unpacked and if you read my last post you know how I feel about packing. My lovely mama did come to help me unpack my kitchen while she was here, yet I am still too busy setting up the rest of our house to do too much cooking. Blasphemy I know. Over the last few days I could feel the effects of kitchen withdrawal starting to set in so I decided to make this quick, flavorful appetizer to get my kitchen fix.
Have you looked at the calendar? I just did. It’s the 4th. of August. The 8th month of the year. I have never really been a fan of August. The weather gets a little too hot. It marks the end of summer and means that the days of sunshine are going to become fewer and fewer here in Seattle. However one thing that is great about August, besides my mom’s birthday, is the beautiful glorious tomatoes that reach their peak this month. They are sweet, tender, juicy and pair perfectly with sweet basil and creamy mozzarella. Place it all atop crusty garlic laced french bread and you have one heck of a summer snack.
A childhood favorite, the ice cream float, is turned into a popsicle with these Dr. Pepper Cherry Float Popsicles.
This cheesy Mexican Street Corn topped creamy chili sauce, fresh cilantro, lime and crumbled cotija cheese is kinda messy but TOTALLY worth it.
Hey friends! It’s that time again. Potluck and BBQ season is upon us. And if you’re like me you are always looking for a good dip to bring along. That is why today, I’m over on Oh Sweet Basil sharing a recipe for this delectable Pepper Jack Bacon Ranch Dip.
These grilled tomato basil burgers showcase the star of summer produce: the tomato.
A twist on a classic this Grilled Kale Caesar Salad is loaded with grilled kale, grilled croutons, fresh parmesan cheese and homemade caesar dressing.
These tacos are loaded with chorizo, sweet corn salsa and cotija cheese.
